A house regarded as an important component of the twentieth-century domestic built heritage of Ballina. Having been well maintained, the elementary form and massing survive intact together with substantial quantities of the original fabric, both to the exterior and allegedly to the interior, thus upholding the character or integrity of a house making a charming visual statement in Nally Street.
